editize          (http://www.editize.com/)
htmlarea         (http://www.interactivetools.com/products/htmlarea/)

are good bets.
In my experience  almost any browser-based editor will dump in 
deprecated tags (especially those based on microsoft's execCommand() 
feature set) but wise editor selection and some good server-side code 
cleanup should get rid of most of the rubbish.
